Ihara was born in Osaka in 1988 and graduated from the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Tokyo University of the Arts with a degree in sculpture in 2013. Focusing on the byproducts and habits of organisms, he creates works that stand on their own as sculptures made by living creatures. In this exhibition, he will show a work in which he uses silkworms and silkworm droppings as coloring agents to dye silk, and a work in which he transforms insect-eaten books into freestanding sculptures. By daring to look at the traces of living creatures and their behaviors, the artist reexamines ecosystems and their cycles.
